        Half-length photographic portrait of Francis Galton, side profile, seated at a desk, poised to write.

      [London: Frederick Hollyer], May, 1899 - Black and white photographic reproduction mounted on buff stiff card, inscribed on the verso in red ink, "Fred Hollyer, 9 Pembroke Square, Kensington, W.", additionally inscribed in black ink, "Francis Galton, photographed May / 1899". Image size: 100 x 145 mm. Mount size: 164 x 106 mm. Pencil notation to verso, "No. 5532". Extremities a little rubbed, an unobtrusive glue repair to top left corner of card mount verso, otherwise in very good condition. A striking photographic portrait of the human geneticist and eugenicist Francis Galton, taken by Frederick Hollyer, the great late 19th-century celebrity photographer. Hollyer (1837–1933) was highly regarded for his fine platinum print reproductions of paintings, particularly those by the Pre-Raphaelites, whom he met in 1860 and for whom he did much to popularise their work. His other speciality became portraiture, and he was the photographer of choice for the celebrity set. For thirty years, from 1882 onwards, he reserved Mondays for welcoming sitters at his studio in Pembroke Square. "Hollyer made a great many revealing and intimate portraits. His subjects included many of the most important artistic, literary and society figures of the day [He] prided himself on his immaculate technical skills and advocated making 'untouched' negatives and prints" (Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, p. 712). His series, Portraits of Many Persons of Note, comprises nearly 200 portraits and includes those of Aubrey Beardsley, Thomas Hardy, Lord Kelvin, William Morris, General Smuts, Ellen Terry, and W. B. Yeats, among others, and were applauded for their delicacy and subtle tonal range. This photograph of Galton was presumably taken as part of the series, and Galton lived only a short distance away, also in Kensington. The Victoria and Albert Museum hold one of the largest collections of Hollyer's work, including the three small albums of portraits which he assembled specially for his daughter. See Biographical Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists & Innovators (Macmillan, 1983), pp. 283–4.

The contents are bound with gilt top edges and head and foot bands. Tiny print on the verso of each front free endpaper reads "SOTHERAN SACKVILLE ST LONDON". The bindings almost certainly date from the early days of the 81 years Sotheran spent at this address. Condition of the bindings approaches very good. The spines are lightly sunned and the boards show moderate wear to extremities. The contents are bright and comparatively clean for the edition. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is only light and intermittent. Careful collation confirms the presence of all maps and plans, noting a discreet repair to the verso of the Volume I map facing p.154 (to reinforce one of the folds). Published in two massive volumes in 1899, the first edition of this work is compelling in every respect. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. Mohammed Ahmed was a messianic Islamic leader in central and northern Sudan in the final decades of the 19th century. In 1883 the Mahdists overwhelmed the Egyptian army of British commander William Hicks, and Great Britain ordered the withdrawal of all Egyptian troops and officials from the Sudan. In 1885, General Gordon famously lost his life in a doomed defense of the capitol, Khartoum, where he had been sent to lead evacuation of Egyptian forces. Though the Mahdi died in 1895, his theocracy continued until 1898, when General Kitchener reoccupied the Sudan. With Kitchener was a very young Winston Churchill, who participated in the last "genuine" cavalry charge of the British army at the battle of Omdurman in September 1898, where the Mahdist forces were decisively defeated. Churchill - a young officer in a colonial British army - is notably sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. This work offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. In addition to being a compelling piece of writing, the text of the first edition of The River War is both beautifully rendered and bibliographically precious. Each of the two large volumes is printed on heavy paper with a profusion of illustrations, maps, and plans. They are also scarce; there were only 2,000 copies of this first edition, first printing. Moreover, this is one of the few Churchill books for which there was no concurrent U.S. first edition. Notably, the first edition is the only unabridged edition to this day. In 1902 Churchill (then a new Member of Parliament) revised and abridged his text, excising much of his criticism of Kitchener for political reasons. All of the many subsequent editions of The River War are based on the 1902 abridged and revised text. Please anticipate that this large, heavy set may require additional postage.

Horace Smith befriended Percy Shelley in 1816, and it was in the spirit of literary competition with Smith that Shelley wrote "Ozymandias" in 1818. Smith's own sonnet was titled "On a Stupendous Leg of Granite". Before he left England, Shelley, with the utmost confidence in Smith's integrity and discretion, placed his pecuniary affairs in his hands" (139).

        Siege of Ladysmith with Sketched Map

      Ladysmith, 1899. Journal of manuscript field notes made by British peer Brigadier-General John Harington (1873-1943), while participating in the Second Boer War, including a pencil sketch map showing the theatre of war around Ladysmith in November 1899. Together with a large albumen photograph of locals fishing from a simple catamaran, and a tailor's billhead receipt from London dated February 1902 shortly after his return from the Second Boer War. 8vo. Approximately 40 pages in manuscript, plus a double page sketch map. With 2 leafs additional notes and an officer's dispatch message to him in the original covers, loosely placed within. An additional 10 pages written inversely from the rear of the volume seem to pertain to his service during the First World War and include a very detailed chart of comrades in the Navy with their age, trade, and other particulars. Brown cloth boards with ownership inscription to front, measuring approximately 14 x 9 cm. At the heart of the battlefield during the Siege of Ladysmith, Brigadier-General John Harington jotted down matters of utmost importance, including strategic movements and orders from his superiors. Harington evidently took on a leadership roll, and a dismounted party of Hussars came under his command. He also devised a calendar chart with the names of all men in his platoon to verify their presence each day, from October to December 1899. Here he notes any transfers, and one man "Brooke" who was "Killed at Surprise Hill." A list of abbreviations aids to decipher the chart, and denotes whether each officer was on duty, sick, fatigued, absent, killed, or so on. Some entries are written in full script, others are slightly cryptic perhaps out of haste or necessity. From his notes we also learn specifically what the men wore and carried with them, the distance ranges from King's Hill West Point to twelve other posts, and what message was sent to the officers and soldiers by Queen Victoria on Christmas Day 1899. A report headed "Wounded Men," 3 pages in length was received by a General Sir Archibald Hunter, a senior officer who distinguished himself during the Boer War and would later become Governor of Omdurman, which gives specific directives for leaving wounded men behind, justified by a now obsolete courtesy of conduct which was then understood and usually respected between "civilised nations" while at war. The double page sketch map, drawn on the spot, shows British military positions as the town of Ladysmith had been beleaguered with troops surrounding it in a horseshoe shape for defence. The primary camp is shown at the center, between Range Point and Convent Hill. Other encampments lay on Cemetery, Helpmakaar Hills, etc. The drawing extends from Cover Redoubt to the north and Ceasars camp to the south. Roads to Veenan, Colenso, Newcastle, and Helpmekaar are shown. [The battalions made trenches reinforced by stone and sand bags, worked tirelessly at improving the town defences and mounted patrols to keep watch on the enemy. The Boers surrounded them at a distance of 2 to 4 miles.] Some excerpts from the journal: "From G.O.C. 8th Bdl. To O.C. Battery & M.I. on Observation Hill - You are to come in at once..." "General Scheme Defence Maritzburg [Pietermaritzburg, capital of Natal] 3 Corps Inf: encamped outside town at... Bissets Hill Griffins Below Signal Hill.

NFF Order 352 [Natal Field Force]. It has been brought to the notice of the G.O.C. that many men, prompted by a high sense of duty & comradeship leave the fighting rank and remain behind even in retreat to help wounded comrades. This is forbidden. In warfare against a civilised enemy the wounded receive every attention from friend & foe. It is therefore unnecessary that officers and men should weaken the fighting strength of their own side and run grave risks of being made prisoners of war by such acts... Further while combatants are in the field our ambulances and their establishments cannot expect to be granted that immunity from hostile action which is accorded to them by all civilised nations... On more than one occasion in this Campaign this has actually occurred. This order will be read 3 times on parade. B.O. (Sgt) A. Hunter" [Original dispatch letter in envelope] "Lt. Harington: A Coy will halt with the supply columns, & guard it tonight... B Coy may come on as quick as he can to rejoin the Btn in bivouack." End Excerpts. Brigadier-General John Harington (1873-1943) was in the Field Intelligence Division, Natal Field Force, when he kept this field journal, at age 26 commanding a battalion of the 2nd Rifle Brigade, stationed at King's Post, during the Siege of Ladysmith. Previously, Harington had fought in the Nile Expedition of 1898. As revealed here, he fought in the Boer War between 1899 and 1902. Shortly after that, he found himself in the Somaliland Expedition, from 1903 to 1904, and subsequently in the Nandi East Africa Campaign between 1905 and 1906. He gained the rank of Brevet Lieutenant-Colonel. He continued serving through the First World War, was mentioned in despatches four times, was wounded three times, and received the Distinguished Service Order (D.S.O.) in 1915. Circa 1918/19 he gained the rank of Brigadier Commander. At about that time he gained the rank of Colonel in the 3rd and 2nd Battalions, Rifle Brigade, and in 1923 the rank of Temporary Colonel in the Staff and Inspector-General, King's African Rifles. He gained the rank of commanding officer between 1928 and 1930 in the 139th (Sherwood Foresters) Infantry Brigade. He gained the rank of Honorary Brigadier-General in 1930. [His distinguished military career is further recounted in "Who Was Who"]. He was also awarded the Chevalier - Ordre national de la Légion d'honneur; and in 1919 was appointed Companion, Order of St. Michael and St. George (C.M.G.). He was appointed Companion, Order of the Bath (C.B.) in 1927. For a time, he held the office of Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for Shropshire. In 1908 he married Lady Frances Aline Temple-Gore-Langton, daughter of the 4th Earl of Stowe, and they had three children. They lived at Chelmarsh Hall, Bridgnorth in Shropshire. He is the younger brother of Sir Richard Harington (1861-1931) 12th Baronet of the Harington Baronetcy of Ridlington in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands, who succeeded their father to the title in 1911. He was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford. Called to the Bar in 1886, he practised as a barrister on the Oxford Circuit. He served in the London Brigade of the Royal Naval Artillery Volunteers from 1880 to 1891, and had commanded the Artillery Company of the Calcutta Port Defence Volunteers from 1900 to 1909. He took up an appointment as a Puisne Judge in the High Court of Justice at Fort William in Bengal in 1899, where he served in that capacity until returning home in 1913. For this service he earned the Delhi Durbar Medals. He volunteered for the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve on the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, then aged 53. He was promoted to the rank of Chief Petty Officer in the Anti-Aircraft Corps, in which capacity he served until 1916. A onetime Justice of the Peace and Deputy Lieutenant for Herefordshire, he was appointed High Sheriff of Herefordshire in 1918 and died in February 1931, having succeeded to his father's title in 1911. John and Richard Harington are sons of Sir Richard Harington (1835-1911), who became 11th Baronet in 1877. The Siege of Ladysmith was a protracted engagement in the Second Boer War, taking place between 30 October 1899 and 28 February 1900 at Ladysmith, Natal. The Boers made several attacks at and around Ladysmith but the British blocked the attempted invasion of the colony. Commanding British troops was Lieutenant General Sir George White, his army numbered approximately 5,500 men against a varying number of Boers. From the end of the year 1899, the garrison outnumbered the besieging Boers. The South African Republic (Dutch: Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek, or ZAR), often informally known as the Transvaal Republic, was an independent Boer-ruled country in northern South Africa during the second half of the 19th century. It occupied the area later known as the South African province of Transvaal, its name in Afrikaans meaning 'beyond the Vaal River'. The Second Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902), involved large numbers of troops from many British possessions, which ended with the conversion of the Boer republics into British colonies (with a promise of limited self-governance). These colonies later formed part of the Union of South Africa. The British fought directly against the Transvaal and the Orange Free State, defeating their forces first in open warfare and then in a long and bitter guerrilla campaign. In 1900, during the Second Boer War, the ZAR was annexed by the United Kingdom. British losses were high due to both disease and combat. Originally consisting of the bulk of the independent Boer South African Republic after the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902 it became the Transvaal Colony, and one of the founding provinces of the Union of South Africa, with its regional capital in Pretoria from 1910 until 1994. The province no longer exists, and its territory now forms the provinces of Gauteng, Limpopo and Mpumalanga and part of the North West Province. Despite its official disintegration, the Transvaal is still a commonly used geographical term and retains its historical meaning.

This was the culmination of the Egyptian Campaign undertaken by Kitchener to reclaim the Sudan and to gain revenge for the death of General Gordon in 1884. Colonel Long was later responsible for the most Victoria Crosses (seven) won during a single action in the Boer War at Colenso in 1899. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Heiteres und Ernstes aus dem Soldatenleben eines alten Officiers.

      Verlag von E. Weyrich Witwe (Inhaber Adolf Hein), Troppau 1899 - original Leinenband, Rundumgoldschnitt, 8°, VI, 232 Seiten; Zustand: Fadenheftung etwas gelockert, Vorsätze etwas fleckig, sonst gut Vorwort: Wenn ich mich in schon vorgerücktem Alter entschloß, meine Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen während einer fast dreißigjährigen Dienstzeit niederzuschreiben, so verfolgte ich dabei hauptsächlich den Zweck, jüngeren Kameraden einen Einblick zu geben, wie es vor mehr als vierzig Jahren in der Armee aussah und wie sich die Verhältnisse bis unmittelbar nach dem Feldzuge 1866 geändert, gebessert haben. Manches, was hier erzählt wird, dünkt heute kaum glaublich. Ich will mit der Veröffentlichtung meiner Erlebnisse außerdem den Zweck erreichen, daß von Seite der Herren Vorstände von Veteranen- und anderen patriotischen Vereinen den jüngeren Mitgliedern nahe gelegt werde, wie viel günstiger sich für die Angehörigen der Armee die Verhätlnisse gegen früher gestaltet haben. Wenn auch die physischen und geistigen Anforderungen heute mitunter gegen früher bedeutendere sein mögen, so wir zugegeben werden, daß das Ertragen von Strapazen dem Soldaten durch zweckmäßige Adjustierung und Ausrüstung und was die Hauptsache, durch die menschenwürdigere Behandlung leichter gemacht wird; weiters dürfte durch die Veröffentlichung meiner Erzählungen manches bisher unwichtig Beurtheilte - und das betrifft Nordböhmen, als den im Feldzugsjahre 1866 stark betroffenen Theil - aufgeklärt werden. Indem ich somit meine Mittheilungen der Öffentlichkeit übergebe, sollen dieselben mit der ergebenen Bitte begleitet sein, es möge das Urtheil über manches darin Vorkommende wohlwollend sein gegenüber dem Verfasser.

        Programmes, Maps, Photographic Postcards and Personal Invitations of Sir Richard Harington - 12th Baronet

      Calcutta, Delhi, 1899-1912. Mini archive of Sir Richard Harington (1861-1931), then serving as a Justice in the High Court Fort William in Bengal, commemorating his attendance at the Delhi Durbar of 1911 and featuring ephemeral programmes, maps, postcards, and his own private invitations to the event. Together with portrait photographs taken of him upon accepting the post of Puisne Judge in 1899 and other family portraits. Sir Richard Harington (1861-1931), was 12th Baronet of the Harington Baronetcy of Ridlington in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands, succeeding his father to the title in 1911. He was the eldest son of Sir Richard Harington, 11th Baronet, and was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford. Called to the Bar in 1886, he practised as a barrister on the Oxford Circuit. He served in the London Brigade of the Royal Naval Artillery Volunteers from 1880 to 1891, and had commanded the Artillery Company of the Calcutta Port Defence Volunteers from 1900 to 1909. He took up an appointment as a Puisne Judge in the High Court of Justice at Fort William in Bengal in 1899, where he served in that capacity until returning home in 1913. For this service he earned the Delhi Durbar Medals. He volunteered for the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve on the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, then aged 53. He was promoted to the rank of Chief Petty Officer in the Anti-Aircraft Corps, in which capacity he served until 1916. A onetime Justice of the Peace and Deputy Lieutenant for Herefordshire, he was appointed High Sheriff of Herefordshire in 1918 and died in February 1931, having succeeded to his father's title in 1911. The lot includes the following: Three formal portrait photographs of Sir Richard Harington (1861-1931), including one cabinet card by Norman May & Co Ltd of Malvern, together with additional portraits of his wife, child, and the couple together. Personal invitation card to Justice and Lady Harington, as guests at the ceremony of the Laying of the Foundation Stone at New Delhi, placed by King George V and Queen Mary on 15 December 1911 at the site of Delhi Durbar of 1911 at Kingsway Camp, 2 km from Coronation Park. Personal invitation and programme of an Afternoon Party to Honor the British Monarchs, held in Calcutta 5 January 1912, also during the royal visit. Official Programmes and Maps for the Delhi Durbar of 1911, rare documents, including the official programme and memoir of Delhi (8vo. 149 pages plus photographic plates) official directory with maps (small 8vo. 388 pages plus 2 maps in rear pocket), a programme to the state service (8vo. 12 pages string-tied with covers), and a programme to the state garden party (small 8vo. 4 pages with illustrated covers, formerly ribbon-tied). Three postcards showing various tent camps erected for the event, including the Viceroy's tent encampment. Produced by Johnston and Hoffman, a commercial photographic firm active in India between 1870 and 1918. The Delhi Durbar, meaning "Court of Delhi", was an Indian imperial style mass assembly organised by the British at Coronation Park, Delhi, India, to mark the succession of an Emperor or Empress of India. Also known as the Imperial Durbar, it was held three times, in 1877, 1903, and 1911, at the height of the British Empire. The 1911 Durbar was the only one that a sovereign, George V, attended. On 22 March 1911, a royal proclamation announced that the Durbar would be held in December to commemorate the coronation in Britain a few months earlier of George V and Mary of Teck and allow their proclamation as Emperor and Empress of India. Practically every ruling prince and nobleman in India, plus thousands of landed gentry and other persons of note, attended to pay obeisance to their sovereigns. The official ceremonies lasted from 7 December to 16 December, with the Durbar itself occurring on Tuesday, 12 December.] This event was significant in that it resulted in the capital of India being changed. Calcutta (now Kolkata) was the capital of India during the British Raj until December 1911. On 12 December 1911, during his speech for laying the foundation stone for the Viceroy's residence in the Coronation Park, Kingsway Camp, George V, then Emperor of India, along with Queen Mary, his Consort, made the announcement that the capital of the Raj was to be shifted from Calcutta to Delhi. Subsequently, the foundation stone was shifted from the site of Delhi Durbar of 1911, where the Coronation Pillar stood, and embedded in the walls of the forecourt of the Secretariat. Although Calcutta was established as the capital of India in 1911, it would be twenty years before it would be officially inaugurated as such. Lord Irwin, the Viceroy, commenced these ceremonies on 10 February 1931. A massive tent city was created north of the areas of Paharganj and Sadar Bazaar. The camp was home to maharajahs from across India, and provided them with lavish temporary accomodations. A correspondent for the Allahabad-based 'Pioneer' newspaper reported that in some cases, the tent poles were covered in beaten silver. He praised the Baroda camp for its elegant color scheme and attractive entrance arch, but described the camp of the Maharaja of Kashmir as the finest of all. According to architectural historian Robert Grant Irving, who described the making of New Delhi in his 1981 book 'Indian Summer', the Durbar camps were home to 300,000 and as many as 750,000 people flooded the city.

The relationship between the Publisher and Editor and the Military Authorities was precarious, with Whales being briefly imprisoned for quarrelsome criticism of the conduct of the siege, however Townshend and Whales clearly recognised the curiosity value of their publication and proceeded to create a business out of what was initially done for community benefit.
